If a lavish and elegant wedding is your style, the William Aiken House might be just your cup of tea! The William Aiken House, part of the Patrick Properties Hospitality Group, has been wowing the good folks of Charleston South Carolina since 1807, and has the distinction of now being registered as a National Historic Landmark. From the moment you step towards the Aiken House you can’t help but notice how the history of this stunning property has been preserved and enhanced, and every detail has been perfected! In fact, The William Aiken House was named as the premiere wedding venue in the state of South Carolina by Martha Stewart Weddings and Brides Magazine, and it’s easy to see why!
Ballrooms, and Piazzas’ and Reflecting Pools, Oh My!
Whether you are looking for a refined indoor affair in its perfectly appointed ballrooms, brimming with antiques and art, or are looking for a beautiful garden or courtyard wedding, the William Aiken House can deliver. There is a classic but contemporary elevated pergola, complete with a large gorgeous reflecting pond, in one of the gardens, which could make a perfect ceremony backdrop. It is just waiting for you to add your own design elements and style to it. You can drape it with flowers or silk if you prefer, and it just happens to be backed by a lush wall of greenery.
If outdoor ceremonies are your thing, but are looking for something a little less formal, you could say your ‘I do’s’ right under the shade of the 200 year old magnolia tree, which is the stunning centerpiece of the beautiful courtyard and manicured lawn at the center of the estate.
